The HyperText Markup Language (HTML) is a simple markup language used to
create hypertext documents that are portable from one platform to another.
HTML documents are SGML documents with generic semantics that are
appropriate for representing information from a wide range of applications.
HTML markup can represent hypertext news, mail, documentation, and
hypermedia; menus of options; database query results; simple structured
documents with inlined graphics and hypertext views of existing bodies of

This specification defines the capabilities of HTML version 3.0 and
provides additional capabilities over previous versions such as tables,
text flow around figures and math. It is backwards compatible with

Send a message to: mailserv@ds.internic.net. In the body type:
"FILE /internet-drafts/draft-ietf-html-specv3-00.txt".

NOTE: The mail server at ds.internic.net can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e., documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.

For questions, please mail to Internet-Drafts@cnri.reston.va.us.
